Fair and Balanced

I can now say that my coverage of the US election this year has been fair and balanced. I have attended functions for both candidates. I didn't get pictures from the Food and Wine Tasting we attended last month for the Barak Obama campaign. So sorry to you Democrats. I do have to say that the food was delicious but I felt really sorry for the local candidates. (Obama was not there.) Wine tasting and stump speeches just do not mix. They should have spoken much earlier in the evening if they truly wanted the "tasters" to listen.

Yesterday, however, the candidate was there. I am so impressed with Sarah Palin. She was quite a dynamic speaker and since the doors opened to the event at 7 am most everyone was polite and listened to her speech(no wine tasting here). There was one protester who was quickly escorted out the door but all else was calm by mob rule standards.

It is such a privilege as an American citizen to be able to place my vote for the next governmental leaders. No matter which way you vote, Independent, Democrat or Republican, let your voice be heard.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Quilting!!

It is nice to hear someone encouraging others to vote - we have compulsory voting here. Now, I don't know whether that is good or bad, but in such troubled times I think it is important that American citizens make their voices heard!
